Hope

Pro 13:12 “Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a desire fulfilled is a tree of life.”

Though my hope is deferred and my heart is sick,
My trust in You Lord shall remain through the thick.
Hope I have in hope someday,
And when fulfilled forever it shall remain.

This desire is Yours I believe it to be true,
Keep me rooted, hold me close to You.
And so, the Tree of life is the way,
That I choose for myself anew this day.
